Cricbro match prediction today:
KKR vs. RCB match is expected to be heavily dominated by Virat Kohli and his team. They are currently in the third position in the IPL 2021 points table, having won 5 games from the 7. Virat Kohli was in subline form during phase 1, and he will be eager to continue his excellent run in the second phase. According to Cricbrofree cricket tips today, if they manage to keep wickets in the starting, we are in for a high score from them. With Harshal Patel, Mohammad Shiraj, and Yuzvendra Chahal, the bowling department form a complete package.
On the contrary, Kolkata Knight Riders have a huge task ahead. They will be without the service of their key fast bowler Pat Cummins. This is a massive blow for the team. Because he is the leading wicket-taker for KKR. The batting department also looks out of touch with Subhuman Gill, the lone player with some runs under his belt.
The Tipster online says that the middle-order needs to rise to the occasion to recover from this season's initial loss. According to Cricbro match prediction who will win, RCB seems the clear favorite in this RCB vs. KKR encounter.
